Riverside walking track is a 5km, grade 3 One Way hike located in the Lane Cove National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.

Summary

The delightful Riverside walking track meanders through natural bushland and a string of picturesque picnic areas in Lane Cove National Park, just north of Sydney CBD. Enjoy a weekend getaway without leaving town and introduce the kids to the simple pleasures of birdwatching and wildlife-spotting.
Following the southern bank of Lane Cove River, from the weir near Delhi Road to Deburghs Bridge, the scenic walk takes in peaceful bush settings where you can stop and enjoy tranquil river views. When it’s time for a lunch break, unroll the picnic blanket at Commandment Rock picnic area.
Along the track you might see lorikeets and kookaburras as well as egrets and spoonbills, so be sure to bring along some binoculars for a spot of birdwatching with the kids. Keep an eye out for swamp wallabies and brush turkeys darting through the bush. If you’re keen for a challenge, return via the northern riverbank along Great North walk.
